Part 1: How to determine if your IT needs is better served with a blockchain-powered ITSM solution

Managing your IT department with traditional ITSM solutions is like using old tools to solve new problems. As organizations must evolve to survive, likewise must the IT department evolve to meet the organization's IT needs and be viewed as a key business enabler. Tackling a new job to be done by your IT department requires a new ITSM solution that allows you to evolve and swiftly adapt to the ever-growing needs of your organization.

Regardless of your organization's IT needs, the IT department must be perceived as a catalyst that launches the organization toward its larger goals. Some of the new ITSM solutions often requires working with a third party vendor or what's known as IT outsourcing.

A wrong decision when considering outsourcing your IT needs to an external IT vendor can result in costing time and money.

One of the most important factors to consider when outsourcing your organization's IT needs is choosing the right service provider. It could be that you're at the early decision stage; to-outsource or not-to-outsource? If your decision was to outsource to an IT service provider to improve the service quality, drive more innovation, reduce cost, and increase efficiency e.t.c. It can be very difficult to fully assess if the service provider is the right fit for your organization, prior to signing the service agreement.

Once the service agreement has been signed and the service provider is a good fit, this can be of huge benefit to both parties. On the flip side, when it isn’t a good fit, it can end up doing more harm than good; it results in low productivity, costing time and money that may be better invested in other approaches, like bringing the service in-house, hiring skilled resources or engaging a different service provider that can deliver the services for the jobs to be done.
